Antibacterial Nano-particles synthesized at IAU S&R Branch

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 22:56

Researchers of Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch, have succeeded in synthesizing a type of antibacterial nano-particle which can be used in medical and pharmaceutical fields. These nano-particles can also be used as sensitive photocatalysts in the visible light spectrum in order to purify water polluted by waste pharmaceuticals.

thumbDefault-en “Enrofloxacin is an effective man-made antibiotic which is used in veterinary medicine to treat a wide range of animal infections”, said Ali Fakhry, M.A. student of chemistry and member of the Young Researchers and Elite Club of this branch. He pointed to the indiscriminate use of this antibiotic in poultry and livestock meat production, which results in bacterial resistance and clarified that although this antibiotic has recently seen increased use  in treating diseases and increasing the resilience of the animals in order to promote their growth, it has negative effects on consumers of these products.

Tin sulfide nano-particles are synthesized in an efficient and inexpensive way and their antibacterial effect on Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus has been investigated in this research

 Sajjad Behrouz, M.A. student of microbiology has been collaborating with Mr. Fakhry on the project.
